VIDEO – HPQ Silicon Receives U.S. Patent for Its PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Technology For One-Step Transformation of Quartz (SiO 2) Into High Purity Silicon Metal
HPQ Silicon Resources $HPQ $HPQFF is a Quebec-based company that is developing high value-added silicon products that are sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers – but nobody has yet delivered – until now.
If that sounds a lot like what other small companies are saying lately, $HPQ differentiates itself as a leader of the pack thanks to the following:
•$HPQ has already Received It’s First Order for Spherical Nano Silicon Material from Major Automobile Manufacturer
•$HPQ has already received signed NDAs from at least 2 battery players
•$HPQ secured U.S. Patent for Its PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Technology
The Company recently announced Receipt of U.S. Patent for Its PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Technology
To understand the importance and the implications of this milestone, this excerpt from the press release says it all:
The US patent covers the PUREVAP™ QRR innovative process, which permits the one-step transformation of quartz (SiO 2 ) into high purity silicon metal (from 99.5% to 99.99% Si) at reduced costs, energy input, and carbon footprint. This game changing advantage means that the PUREVAP™ QRR process not only produces a higher purity silicon material than traditional processes, but it does not require the extremely pure feedstock needed by conventional processes. In fact, the process only requires 4.5 MT of raw material to make 1 MT of Silicon, versus the 6 MT required by conventional processes, a 25% reduction which potentially allows a 20% cash cost advantage versus the lowest cost traditional Silicon producer 1 . Furthermore, as part of our ongoing strategy of protecting and strengthening the PUREVAP™ Intellectual Property Portfolio, a second patent application, focussed on a new and novel process was filed in 2019 and is presently advancing through the process.
Bernard Tourillon, President and CEO of HPQ commented,
“HPQ has been at the forefront of Low-Cost Green Silicon innovation developments since 2015, and getting this U.S. patent approval, combined with the ongoing commissioning of the GEN3 PUREVAP™ QRR pilot plant , has occurred at an opportune time, as demand continues to rise and bottlenecks we had foreseen are now occurring in the silicon supply chain. With ESG principles playing an active role in materials sourcing, the world is more aware of the difficulty of securing the ESG compliant Silicon needed to meet its renewable energy goals. The reality of chronic underinvestment in new technologies combined with the offshoring of Silicon production capacity, has created a massive opportunity for HPQ and its PUREVAP™ QRR patented process, as we are the only company to bring to market a new process to make Silicon that is perfectly suited to the new demands and realities of the Silicon market
